Pogba Vows To Appeal Doping Ban

French footballer, Paul Pogba has vowed to challenge his four-year ban from football by the anti-doping Tribunal at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

Pogba made this known while claiming he is innocent and that he had never taken any substance knowingly that comes under the purview of doping.

Speaking about the sudden ban, the Juventus star vowed to appeal the career-ending sanction, saying he had never cheated by taking a banned substance.

The former Manchester United player also revealed that his career had been left in ruins after being handed a four-year ban for failing a drug test.

Pogba, 30, in a statement said, “I have today been informed of the Tribunale Nazionale Antidoping’s decision and believe that the verdict is incorrect. I am sad, shocked and heartbroken that everything I have built in my professional playing career has been taken away from me.

“When I am free of legal restrictions the full story will become clear, but I have never knowingly or deliberately taken any supplements that violate anti-doping regulations. As a professional athlete I would never do anything to enhance my performance by using banned substances and have never disrespected or cheated fellow athletes and supporters of any of the teams I have played for, or against.

“As a consequence of the decision announced today I will appeal this before the Court of Arbitration for Sport.”
